SANTA BARBARA, CA, April 12, 2023 – Invoca, the cloud leader in AI-powered conversation intelligence, today announced it surpassed $100 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR) during its last fiscal year. The company raised a $83 million Series F equity financing to invest in continued AI innovation, deeper solutions for the automotive industry, partnerships in the contact center, and a stronger market presence in the U.K. Invoca also welcomes two new executives to lead Corporate Development and People & Culture.
“Surpassing $100M in ARR is a critical milestone in the world of enterprise software,” says Gregg Johnson, CEO at Invoca. “It illustrates the appetite for AI-powered solutions that transform how innovative consumer brands acquire customers, drive revenue, and deliver an outstanding customer experience.”
Invoca Extends AI Leadership in Marketing and the Contact Center
With brands aggressively turning to new ways to use AI in their contact centers, Invoca is increasing its annual research and development (R&D) investment to accelerate its product development and bring innovative solutions to the market faster. Growing its patent portfolio, Invoca secured two new AI patents for scripted topic detection in Invoca’s Signal Discovery machine learning solution and pre-seeding topics for Invoca’s Signal AI to provide unique value to its customers.
Invoca’s award-winning AI has received multiple accolades throughout the last fiscal year. Opus Research named Invoca the Leader and Top Solution for Sales & Marketing in its 2022 Conversational Intelligence Intelliview. Opus Research’s Senior Analyst and Research Director, Derek Top, highlights, “Invoca’s AI analyzes 100% of calls, scoring agent performance for adherence to sales scripts, talk tracks, goals, and other metrics, identifying important moments in calls for managers to review, saving them time while making evaluations comprehensive and fair, which helps improve both agent performance while reducing agent frustration and churn.”
Five9 also recognized Invoca as a Global Partner Award 2022 winner for helping organizations tap into digital customer journey data to deliver more personalized conversations at scale. With Invoca’s groundbreaking pre-call data, contact centers can–for the first time–access the rich trail of digital journey data callers create just before they reach out by phone.
